CEO Mark Zuckerberg indicated in a statement that the change toward more personal content is meant to ensure that people’s time on Facebook is well spent.
Facebook chief Mark Zuckerberg announced a major revamp to users’ news feeds on Thursday, saying that the changes would likely make users spend less time on the platform. However, the update would help people on Facebook have “more meaningful social interactions,” he added in an online post.
“We built Facebook to help people stay connected and bring us closer together with the people that matter to us,” the 33-year-old co-founder of Facebook said. “But recently we’ve gotten feedback from our community that public content — posts from businesses, brands and media — is crowding out the personal moments.”
